Yesterday I presented at the TradersExpo in NYC: A study of 5 successful traders from our desk. (Above is a picture of me, chatting with traders after my talk.) It’s important to study traders who have succeeded and learn from them as a trader and firm. The successful traders provide inspiration for those striving and best practices to copy.
We are one firm, trading one particular style of trading, training one way, in NYC, at one moment in time. We do not have all the answers. But when studying our success stories, a formula for trading success was brewed. And I shared it during my presentation at the TradersExpo. Perhaps it will give you something to think about for your trading.
